What's It Feel Like to Pocket $40 Billion In a Year? Dunno. Ask ExxonMobil.

Speaking of ExxonMobil, as we were earlier this week, looks like the Irving-based petrochemical Goliath is just a li'l bit bigger today: Says here the company set the world's record by claiming a $40.6 billion profit in 2007, shattering its '05 record by a good $1.1 billion. Says the AP, "the world's largest publicly traded oil company benefited from historic crude prices at year's end." But this'll make you feel better: In Dallas, the average gallon of gas, as of today, will run ya $2.838 -- down 3.9 cents from last week, so there. --Robert Wilonsky
